⊃∪∩⪽ | Legendary | October 22 2021 | Denis Villeneuve | Reviews coming in

Recommended Posts

Venice has been quite US-friendly in recent years. Even without a win, Dune will certainly get some prestigious status. Problem is October schedule is way too crowded for a "relatively" straight out of gate film like Dune, not to mention HBO max shit is still going on

Anything's possible.  I think everything stands as it has been announced...unless/until they change it.  😉

If Dune is going to Venice, then that will be more sensible for Dune to have October slot since the buzz will kick in just in time but the competition is just way too steep...

It really has an awful release date. Sandwiched between Venom and Bond. I don't  know where they could have dated it. And worst of all, it goes to streaming too. This is the biggest movie that WB dumped this year.

If they keep the date and it get released on HBO Max day on date, i think Legendary and Villeneuve will convince Warner to approve the sequel before the first one drops arguing that no matter how the movie perform, it´s a victim of both pandemic + HBO Max and they can´t use the numbers to decide on a sequel, so they need to approve it before.

 

I would put this as condition to finally agreed with their simultaneous release plan.

It's up to Legendary to green-light a sequel.

Why would any film production company agree to that though? If it bombs, it bombs. Whether the circumstances contributed to it or not, there’s just no business sense in Legendary greenlighting a sequel to something that may underperform.

 

Lets just hope for the best and that it doesn’t bomb.

What can they gain from this?

Distance. They were releasing between Venom and Bond which was a bad bad release date. This one is bad but not as much. Anyway Dune is a flop wherever it comes out.

 

It's the next In The Heights where Twitter will not represent real life.

It's a pretty good date, i said somewhere here months ago that they should go for this date.

 

On October 1st will be just between Venom and Bond and certainly will suffer because of that.

 

On October 22 both Venom and Bond will have most of their money already and Dune will have full 2 weeks without any big competition before Eternals on November 6.
